Hi Jason and all,
Not sure what's happened but I just went over my recording of Rage last night and found that Rock Arena ep from 20/9/83 had been cut. Using the run sheet as an example:

Pat Wilson, Spectrum and the Mike Rudd segment were all cut from last night's airing. Total to air time was a little over 40 minutes for this one. Is it on tuesdays Rage repeats this timeslot? If they do I hope they play the show in its entirety, unless there's some issue with it (tape damage? Hope not).
Very disappointed at the butchered Rock Arena. I have set my HDD to record every Rage segment during next week and hope that the full episode will be played at sometime.
If anyone has Facebook and cares to suggest to Rage that the full episode be played it would be appreciated as they did oblige a few years back when one episode was cut due to programming and they showed it during the week.
I haven't seen the 'butchered' Rock Arena yet, as I went to bed at 2:30.
Rage normally re-air part of Saturday night's program on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning - looking at the guide, it will run from midnight to 2:15am Wednesday morning, suggesting that they'll re-air 2 retro shows.
I've commented that I hope the 1985 Countdown is one of them, as I got a brief signal glitch during the 'My Heart's On Fire' video. Last week they re-aired one Countdown and one Rock Arena, which is probably what they'll do again this week, I imagine.
The Rage start times are never accurate. My EPG had the correct start time of 11.54. What happened to the exact times that used to be posted here?
The exact timings came from the Rage app, which hasn't been working for weeks so we've had no access to them unfortunately..
My tape ran out before that one. So I don't feel so bad about that now!
